Summer Tango in Nelson
6 - 8 March 2015
To all the participants of the 5th Summer Tango in Nelson,
What a fabulous weekend of dancing. Friday and Saturday's weather aside it was the perfect weekend. Great to see so many familiar happy faces, big smiles and new smiles - to all the Summer Tango virgins, thanks for choosing to come here to play with us! I hope you have gone back home with a really warm tango feeling ;-)
Thanks everyone for being here, for laughing, dancing and sharing your tango stories with each other. Thanks for your kindness to people from other places and for making the effort to make new connections to keep our beloved tango prospering in NZ.
Events like this are why we go to classes and workshops, get sore feet and feel frustrated at times!
Events like this keep us wanting more and fill a very special place in our lives.
So many people are involved in making any weekend like this a true success and I feel it is important to acknowledge the stalwarts .
Behind the scenes are the main people who help set up, pack down and clean: Stevan, Nicki, Ray, Jeanneane, Dave, Bevan, Kay, Mark, Julie, Rosie, Meredith.
Those that bake yumminess: Nicki, Rosie, Marilyn, Kay
Those that generously host out of towners (too many to mention but you know who you are!)
Up front, those providing the music which takes hours of preparation and dedication: Grigor, Stephan, Iain and Maida
And YOU for experiencing Summer Tango, spreading the word and bringing your positive energy and joy to the event - this is what makes it a success!
I'll be back in touch soon with the dates for next year and I'll let you know when the photos are on the website to look at. In the meantime, I'll post a few to Facebook just so you can relive the memories of another great weekend dancing in Nelson, NZ!
